Comedian Kapil Sharma has been in the news for all the wrong reasons. He caught everyone’s attention when he spoke ill about the government and judiciary following Salman Khan’s arrest.
After that he hogged the limelight as he abused the editor of a media house. However, many of his co-stars like Krushna Abhishek, Shilpa Shinde and Rajiv Dhingra came out in support of him.
Knowing about the issue, his co-star Bharti Singh, who calls Kapil as her guru in the industry, said it breaks her heart to see him fight depression and alcoholism. In an interview with a newspaper, Singh commented:
“I called him recently after the entire incident and he said that he is not in the right state of mind and requested to talk later. I told him that he doesn’t need to think about the controversy as people still love him and they want to see the old Kapil back.”
Explaining his situation further, Singh added:
“We all make mistakes and learn from it. Kapil bhai also lost his cool. He is a talented person and has performed so many live shows. When we do stand-up comedy acts, we improvise on our lines and come up with jokes on the spot but we also make sure not to say anything derogatory against anyone. So, if a performer like him is abusing someone, you can understand what he must be going through. When he talks, he only uses beta and greets everyone right from his staff to the people he works with. ‘Ab galti ho gayi… ab unko kuch time ke liye space dete hain’ (we should give him some time) so that he can feel better.”
The ‘Comedy Nights’ actor has made a comeback on the TV screen with his new show ‘Family Time with Kapil Sharma’.
